Testimonials for Tod’s presentations
I am highly impressed with Tod’s ability to shed light on how spirituality can be applied to the practical problems surrounding issues of racism. Discussions on racism and race can be very emotionally challenging. However I strongly believe the practical yet spiritual approach Tod is suggesting is our best hope for unity and justice. I definitely recommend him as a speaker.”
Dr. Phyllis Gudger-Porter - Retired College Professor
The world is so full of pontificating – words, words, words – that when we come across a lesson that sticks with us because it is grounded in deeds, we need to pay attention. The race unity work of Tod Ewing and Phyllis and Gene Unterscheutz is that kind of lesson – one that inspires, lifts us up, gives us the courage to try one more time to bridge the painful gap between black and white in America. These folks never point the finger; they take their own hearts and minds as the field of battle. It is there that they wrestle the angel for his blessing. Their courage, their generosity, their hopefulness – we need these as we struggle to free our hearts and our nation of its most challenging issue: the blight of racial prejudice and interracial tension.

Martin L Varner says:
Thank you, thank you, thank you damn near to death for writing this book…. I am so glad this book is in writing because it speaks the language of all the Black men I know…. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
Janice Sadeghian says:
“I just finished reading Tod Ewing’s book “Seeing Heaven in the Face of Black Men” and was deeply moved by its content and message and the personal experiences, illustrative stories, and heartfelt passion with which it was written. Mr. Ewing reminds each of us that we have a role to play in healing the wounds of racism and building the bridge to a better future, and he makes it clear that this cannot be done without incorporating spirituality as an essential tool.
While it was necessary for me to read this book in installments, my desire was not to put it down until it was finished cover to cover. I will highly recommend this book to others.”
